being thankful, by modest mouse

it's hard to remember we're alive for the first time.
it's hard to remember were alive for the last time.
it's hard to remember to live before you die.
it's hard to remember that our lives are such a short time.
it's hard to remember when it takes such a long time.

rewind to 1984

it's been been 4 years since i first laid eyes on him and i've been thankful for this date ever since. 27 years ago today, he started his journey to me, to graham. he is the definition of a wonderful man, the love of my life.

jeez oh petes, sign me up! if we have another kiddo, i will be figuring out how to look like this! i think i could pull it off via target and forever 21, but i might have to do something about also becoming 5'9. here is a truly stylish maternity line from hatch. can i have the jackets now?


so many of us have tons of people to buy for, it's nice to have a few inexpensive gift ideas. this game looks like a perfect stocking stuffer!

my last colorless post, here goes

i don't know why my last post was void of color, but this one will be too.

a pillow for the cuddle puddle, here.

one of those layers you wear every day, here.

love the tiger print, here.

Emerson Made has a pop up shop happening right now. get it on the cheap! i mean, less than it normally is. but hey, there are some great deals. here.

saying goodbye...

well, not really. i am fairly sure the only people who look at this blog are my friends. so not really goodbye. but, i am going to stop blogging. i figure to wean me off i will blog 2 or 3 more weeks, then throw in the towel. i have had so much fun doing this and i can always look back through the blog as a kind of timeline. i will of course never stop uploading pics of the family on flickr for my far away friends. for those of you that did enjoy the blog, thank you so much!

spiked bow flats here

gift take two

i found today's loot in the same spots i ALWAYS find good loot. the super rad puzzle i spotted here. the bookends/planters/pin boards set, which is insanely cool, i found here. finally, the pocket knife, pretty swell stocking stuffer if you ask me, here. Enjoy! i am trying to find things for every person in every price range. i like to keep it low, because most people have other places their money needs to go. that said, a little gift can put a big smile on somebody's face. isn't that the coolest?
